Rated 2 out of 5 by Ynotgorilla Pain in the rear end to fit to common frame designs, will not last, expensive spares
Used this for 3 months until I resorted to my old superstar guid and a bash. Fitting to tracer (vpp) and nerve (horst frame) both required grinding of the chainguide if I wanted to keep my narrowish chainline for 1x10 use. Rear pulley attachment cracked in an unnoticed incident. Taco cracke JRA, expensive to replace.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Works well, but bearings poor & hard to replace
This is light in weight, and works perfectly, until the jockey wheel bearing gives up. Mine seized after just a few wet rides. That wouldn't be a big deal if E13 had used a standard size cartridge bearing, but unfortunately they chose to use a size and type of bearing that is virtually unobtainable, and will almost certainly be overpriced when I do finally find one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Expensive but worth it.
Great chain guide, probably the lightest component on my entire bike (2007 Specialized Big Hit FSR III). Runs smooth and quiet provided you have the patience to set it up properly. Not took a bash yet but pretty sure it would slice rocks, roots and the occasional landing ramp in two. The chain stays put and it doesn't rub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Simply Brilliant!
I decided to it was time for a single ring up front and a full chain guide was required. After a bit of research, this was the obvious choice.
I also ordered an e Thirteen 36T G-Ring in red, which teamed up with the white guide and black crank arms looks simply stunning!
This guide is very light and beautifully made. Once set up correctly, it is silent and very smooth. I did wince at the cost until I received it, but it is worth every penny! So a five star rating it is!

One word....wow. Fitted one of these after deciding to chance from a 2x9 setup to a 1x10 speed. Best thing I've changed on my five! Don't get me wrong, it was a pain in the backside trying to get the guard inline with my crank and chainring. But once fitted correctly, there's no noise, no chain rub or loss and looks awesome when paired with a renthal chainring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome guide! when set up correctly it's about as close to dead silent as you're going to get on a geared bike... oh and your chain will never come off. Can't ask for more than that.
